    I think most people would have made it under the circumstances with no govt help(Im still without govt help).... for example... I was heating up my soup over candles.... so that I could enjoy luke warm soup. I would also boil water over candles (which took a long arse time) and make my coffee that way... I did that for 8 days before I finally had to abandon ship and stay with family elsewhere. But I could have survived even longer.
    Now... if I had no food and was dropped into the middle of the forest... well that's a different story...

    the lesson learned that is to make sure you have a camp stove with plenty of fuel for the next time. Not quite a doomsday prepper but my house is pretty well stocked with food and ammo.

    With ya on that...add alternative heating source and wood/pellets/whatever fuel you need if you live up north. If we were truly disrupted for whatever the reason it'd be impossible to survive the winter without it.

    Absolutely, and relatively cheap. Although one can never have enough, glad I picked up what .223 I have when I did, stuff is impossible to get around here these days.

    Maybe once I get a bit more, not completely satisfied with the amount I have. Will keep you in mind though if I come across some.

    It's pretty out of control at the moment.
